Lorenzi, Milan

9 Via Montenapoleone
Italy 20121
Tel: 39 02 7602 2848's insider take:

It comes as a bit of a surprise to find this venerable coltellinaio (knifemaker) in the middle of the fashion strip of Via Montenapoleone. But Lorenzi, which began life as a humble knife-sharpening workshop in 1929, is actually full of desirable lifestyle accessories, from vintage tortoiseshell combs to silver hip flasks to a set of precision sculptor's chisels. Down the block is a small museum (visits by appointment only) dedicated to a collection of 4,000 antique razors (what the Web site calls "meaningful moments in the history of shaving").

Closed Sunday.
